How to share and collaborate in Google Docs
Share with your team
To share a file you own or can edit:
Open the file you want to share.
Enter the email addresses or Google Groups you want to share with.
Choose what kind of access you want to grant people:
- Can edit—Collaborators can add and edit content as well as add comments.
- Can comment—Collaborators can add comments, but not edit content.
- Can view—People can view the file, but not edit or add comments.
Everyone you shared the document with receives an email with a link to the document.
If you can’t collaborate in real time, you can leave feedback and questions on the side of the document for team members to look at when they open the file.
Select a section of text.
On the toolbar, click .
Add your notes and click Comment.
If a comment is important for a specific collaborator to see, enter + followed by their address. They’ll get an email with your comment, along with a link to the document. They can then reply to your comments to answer questions or start a discussion.
